Amazing Story!

What an awesome story! This is an absolutely NEW storyline...
I'm awed by the insight and character depth. This was a sweet, heartwarming story. It was also heartrending without the ridiculous angst and constant self doubt from the characters. My only complaint was that it wasn't longer. I can't wait to see what else this lovely author will do.

Totally Awesome!

Loved narrator, story line and characters. This book drew me in from beginning and held me through the end. You will cry it is emotional and beautiful and ugly. Must read.

In the Wilderness, There Was a Hermit.... & a Girl

Where does The Hermit rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

This book ranked pretty high. I normally won't listen to an audiobook this short, but the description caught my attention and I am so glad it did. It seemed a lot longer.

What was one of the most memorable moments of The Hermit?

I think what stands out the most was throughout the book is Ryan knew exactly what Daphne needed. He was so gentle and caring. The story was incredibly heartbreaking at times.

What does Amy Landon bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

With a good narrator the audiobook is always better. Amy Landon did an excellent job narrating.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Yes and I did.

Not what I was looking for

I was looking for a steamy hermit book. This one is more about healing & lots of uncomfortable details regarding abuse.

The writing was good. It wasn't a bad book just not what I expected.

Good mature non-easy romance

In this brief story, Daphney, a 29-year-old married (initially) female artist & Ryan, a 42-yr-old intentionally isolated, male, medical doctor accidentally meet in rural Alaska. The story touches upon rape and torture and other violence, but these aspects are not included for drama factor nor are they gratuitous, overdone or harped upon. They are treated as just part of the story.
Like those aspects, when Daphney and Ryan eventually get together it’s done in a very considerate way that could make sense to a person. It did to me but might not to someone else. And there was nothing graphic or explicit in the sex but a degree of romance and care. I liked that the story seemed “adult.” Though Daphney was 29, she came across as mature and thoughtful. And the paths that Daphney and Ryan chose for their lives made sense and were not easy. There was a HEA but at a cost. So, overall, the story was good though with low-resonation.
